This or that challenge tag

It’s tag time! (aka; Jenny can’t think of any blog post ideas) Thank you to the lovely Minttu from Life of Menta for the tag! You can check out her post here and do have a nosy around her blog because it’s absolutely stunning – I’m also a huge fan of the Finnish language so seeing posts written in English and Finnish is really fascinating to me (you can see how much I get out from that sentence alone). Anyway, on with the tag then!

Shower in the morning or in the evening?

It totally depends on what I’m doing that day but usually I prefer to shower in the evening. Even if I’m going out somewhere the following day, I’ll have a “proper” shower late the night before so I can get away with a quick wash in the morning. But my main bulk of showering gets done in the evening.

City center or close to nature?

Close to nature, definitely. Which is funny considering I’ve lived close to the city all my life.

Brights colors or neutrals?

In fashion, probably neutrals. I can’t get away with wearing bold colours. But in general, I like something bright.

Weird or stupid?

Both – who wants “regular?” 😉

Spring or autumn?

Oooh, I like both but I’d probably pick Autumn because it’s closer to Winter and I absolutely love that first day in autumn when you can feel a chill in the air. I hate Summer with a passion so as much as Spring is lovely, it just reminds me that it’s only going to get hotter!

Mint or cinnamon?

Neither, really but if I had to chose it’d be cinnamon.

Planned or spontaneous?

Planned. Always planned. My type A, stressy, anxious personality loves planning and when things go to plan! Although… I feel like my anxiety does benefit from being thrown into things spontaneously sometimes. But in general, I prefer everything to be planned down to the nearest minute.

A movie at home or at the movie theater?

A movie a home, definitely.

Espresso or latte?

Neither, I can’t drink coffees!

Asking questions or answering questions?

Asking questions, definitely. I hate answering things about myself in real life, I get so embarrassed.

Hugs or kisses?


Spicy or mild food?

Not too spicy but definitely spicy! I love a bit of a kick in my food.

Leather or lace?

I think I probably suit leather more because I’m not particularly feminine in how I dress / look.

Overdressed or under-dressed?

Again, depends on the situation. Under-dressed because it’s comfier!

Adventure or comfort?

Bit of both. My anxiety is screaming, “COMFORT”! And it depends what’s classed as “adventure”. Because if adventure means jumping out of planes or anything ridiculous like that, then definitely comfort!

TV-series or movies?

TV-series 100%! I absolutely adore getting completely engrossed in TV-series. I find them so much more watchable and I often get bored or fall asleep during movies.

Rock or country music?

Rock, definitely!

Red or white wine?

Neither, I don’t drink alcohol.

Working alone or in a team?

I don’t really remember the last time I worked in a team because I’ve been working from home and self employed for a few years now. I think I work better alone; I’m too much of a control freak to let anyone else do anything.

Swimming or sunbathing?

I don’t do either (see back up there – I hate heat!); I’m too fair to sunbathe and don’t go swimming but I’d chose swimming over both of those.

Fast food or sit-down restaurant?

A restaurant is always a nice evening and it’s nice to get out of the house to eat once in a while but my heart lies with fast food and eating a takeaway in front of a good series!

Matched or mismatched socks?

Whatever, I only wear socks to bed or walk the dog!

Dancing or singing?

I can’t do either; I used to do dancing when I was like 11/12 (I was even in a SHOW!) but I can’t sing to save my life.

I won’t tag anyone specific but if you’d like to do this tag, please feel free and copy the questions! Please link me to your post as I’d love to see your answers. Do we agree on any? Let me know!

  1. Love these type of posts. It’s good getting to know you more as a person. It’s also amazing to see you be so open to answer questions to all our followers!

  2. This is such a fun read Jenny. Loved all your answers and found some to be very similar. I love cold weather too, close to nature is very relaxing and fun at times, love spicy food, love watching series, movies at home for me too, underdressed is truly comfy, I don’t drink alcohol, and would love to work alone as well. I just love reading these kind of posts. 🙂

  3. These are such great answers! I can so relate to asking the questions rather than answering the questions; therefore, I do not do a lot of tags. I like to stay in bubble, which has tea (because I also don’t drink coffee), my favorite book to movie adaptations, my scroll listing the books I want turned into tv shows, and a good amount of books. I bet your not that bad at singing; however, if you ever hear me, run away and never look back because I sing like a banshee. 😛 Have a great day!

  4. I prefer morning showers as it gets me to feel more awake but I feel like the concept of an evening shower makes sense because if you’ve been out all day, a shower is a perfect way to freshen and clean up. I can definitely relate to the close to nature answer, I’ve lived right near the city all my life but being close to nature is the one for me – so much to explore and discover!

    My wardrobe fashion wise is pretty much a mix of bright colors and neutrals – though as I work as an intern now, I usually stick to neutrals as I haven’t figure out how to make my bright colors seem professional haha. YAY WINTER & AUTUMN! My favorite seasons too, Spring is okay but I much prefer autumn and winter!

    What about a drive in movie theater? I’ve been to one once at my university and it was a really fun experience. Oh you also don’t drink coffee? I feel like I can sometimes be the only one that doesn’t get the hype of coffee – I’m more of a tea person!


    1. I wish we had a drive through cinema near us but I don’t think we do! I’d love to go to one. And I love tea but I can’t drink coffee – it gives me the shakes and makes me feel drunk x

  5. We have quite a few similarities here, it was really nice to learn more about your personality! I love that you said your anxiety screams comfort, although I do love going on adventures there’s nothing better than winding down and being a sloth haha. I’m glad I’m not the only one who hates Summer as well, bring on that amazing chill in the air and big huge jumpers! I haven’t done a tag post in ages, maybe I need to do one soon 🙂 x

  6. I love these posts, makes me get to know about the person behind the blog. I too like spending time out in the nature. Also, why is adventure now only means jumping off airplanes or tumbling down a cliff. People ruin everything by making it mainstream 😦

  7. What a fun way to get to know you more! People are always surprised when I say I don’t like coffee, I buy hot chocolate whenever I want to take pictures of my drink 😂

  8. This is a fun blog post idea. I agree with a lot of your answers apart from the over dressed or under dressed one. I always seems to go overdressed even if I don’t mean to!

  9. I love these type of posts where you get to find out some more about your favourite bloggers! I’m so sad you hate summer though, although I will admit this year’s heatwave is becoming a tad overwhelming… And a takeaway in front of a good movie is definitely a winner for me – also because having to book a babysitter gets expensive, haha. Lovely post! xx

    1. I hate summer at the best of times, this heatwave is killing me right now. Oh no for the expensive babysitter! If I lived closer I’d be more than happy to babysit in exchange for a takeaway 😂 x

  10. Ooooh I’m definitely going to do this tag when I have time for that! I love getting to know to new people via different tags 🙂 I’m also 100% tv-series fanatic. I mean, movies end too quickly – series can last forever.

    lots of love, Jasmin

  11. Loved reading your answers Jenny, this is such a fun tag! We sound so similar, I don’t drink coffee or alcohol either & I always prefer rock music, working alone, nature and I’m forever planning things too! Eating a takeaway in front of a good series or film is living the dream. Great post! 💖 xx

  12. The fact that you wear socks to bed absolutely horrifies me, haha!! I think most city people would like to live far away from a city… especially if you’re anything like me and hate all the tourists. Tbh, I hate large groups of people tourists or not, haha!

    I think my ideal place to live would be in a small town somewhere in New England. Preferably Stars Hollow 😉


  13. Love posts like this! I’m defo more of a red wine girl and I adore going out for dinner cos it’s an excuse to get all dressed up!


  14. I hate summer too, don’t drink coffee, don’t drink alcohol and love to binge watch a good TV series. Actually, there’s a lot of things I’d answer the same on! lol I really must do one of these tags, I really enjoy reading them! x

  15. Oh I love this, I might have a go, just to change things up on my blog a bit! I’ll be sure to link back to you when I do it! x
